We now sell Ananda Turmeric Tonic at CrossFit Sanitas in the refrigerator. Ananda was inspired by its founder Heli’s research into natural ways to reduce inflammation by including turmeric. There are several turmeric drinks on the market, but this one has fresh turmeric root and actually tastes good. It also includes other antioxidant rich, and anti-microbial spices like ginger, cinnamon, fennel, cardamom, etc.
